3000 miles, 12 states, and three mountain ranges in 9 to 12 days – A team made up by students and staff from the Haute Ecole de la Sante Vaud (HESAV) is participating in one of the world’s most challenging bike races. The Race Across America (RAAM) starts in Oceanside California; from there ultracyclists from around the globe push their physical and mental limits all the way to Annapolis, Maryland.
HESAV’s Teampulse, taking on the journey with 8 amateur cyclists, will share insights on the experience in Boston on June 26, only days after completing their race.
After debriefing with the team on their participation in the continental ultramarathon bicycle race, Professor Kenny Guex of HESAV will deliver a brief presentation on the scientific experiments conducted during the race, followed by a panel discussion where experts from the fields of health, physical therapy and sports will discuss the intersection of sports and health both in extreme situations such as the RAAM, as well as in normal everyday situations.
